Setting the expiration time for ClearPass guest accounts

I was trying to figure out how to set the expiration time on a ClearPass guest account.  In the guest manager section, there are two mandatory sections: Expiration Options and Lifetime Options.  I'm assuming that one of these adjusts the length of time that a guest account is valid?  It looks as though the default timeframe for a guest account is 24 hours.  I want to set it to something more like 8 hours, but haven't quite been able to put my finger (or mouse) on it.  I am continuing to search the documentation.

tips:

  • make sure that your RFC3576 working well.
  • be sure to choose the right option in the guest manager. (Screenshots above)
  • try to update your CPPM with all the updates (ClearPass Policy Manager 6.1.2.53442)
  • BUILD your register form with the right fields

@kdisc98 was offering other fields that you can use for account expiration, of which there are a few.  His/her original suggestion of using the field, "expire_after" is what you want.  Go to your existing self-registration, open the Register Page -> Form and edit field for "expire_after".  The default initial value here is 24 for 24 hours.  Modify this to 8 or whatever you desire.  Now, any users that register on that self-registration page will receive an account valid for 8 hours after the time of registration.
