expire_timezone field is not showing up on the create_user form
Problem:

I have added and enabled the field "expire_timezone" in the create_user form to define the guest user account expire time zone during the account creation. But this field is not showing up on the UI when we try to create a new account. Please find below the screen captures confirming the filed is added and enable but not showing up during the account creation.

 

 

 

 



Diagnostics:

We can define the guest user account expiration time zone with the fields expire_time and expire_after.  But the create_user form has the field "modify_expire_time"  enabled by default, this field is combination of multiple expiration options/fields and the expire_timzone filed won't be visible in if you are using the field modify_expire_time in the create_user form. 

 

You could find the below rule defined in the expire_timezone field when you go to expire_timezone >> Edit >> Advanced Properties >> Visible If.

(typeof(modify_expire_time) == "undefined" || modify_expire_time.value == "expire_time")

 

The above rule states that the expire_timezone will only be visible when you select the option "Account expires at specified time..."(which is expire_time) in the Account Expiration field when you create a new account.

 

The rule can be edited in the expire_timezone field, but the modify_expire_time is combination of multiple expiration option and that may cause confusion with expiration time zone when you select various expiry options.

 

 

 



Solution

So you could use the expiry_timezone field only when you select the option "Account expires at specified time..." when you create the guest accounts.

If you like to modify the create_user form and use either expire_after or expire_time field alone instead of modify_expire_time, then go ahead and disable modify_expire_time field as shown below to customize the create_user form..

create_user form with expire_time and expire_timezone(modify_expire_time is disabled).

 

 

create_user form with expire_after and expire_timezone(modify_expire_time is disabled).
