I'm trying to create an audit policy whenever a user attempts to logon and could not connect successfully because of incorrect password. I tried this command and I am getting an error:

create audit policy connect_spiuser_policy actions logon 
when 'SYS_CONTEXT(''USERENV'',''SESSION_USER'')=''SPIUSER'''
whenever not successful;
SQL> create audit policy connect_spiuser_policy actions logon
  2  when 'SYS_CONTEXT(''USERENV'',''SESSION_USER'')=''SPIUSER'''
  3  whenever not successful;
whenever not successful
*
ERROR at line 3:
ORA-00905: missing keyword
Please advise. Thank you.

You specify WHENEVER NOT SUCCESSFUL when you enable policy, not when you create it Smile

Example in the Security Guide here,
https://docs.oracle.com/en/database/oracle/oracle-database/19/dbseg/configuring-audit-policies.html#GUID-AC30632D-80E0-40BB-91AF-0416 A904A707

"whenever not successful" is an option of AUDIT not CREATE AUDIT POLICY.
You create the audit policy then you "activate" it using "AUDIT POLICY ... WHENEVER NOT SUCCESSFUL".
