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.

Here is an some screenshots examples,on how to Built a self-reg page that create guest account for 1 hour.
And i also configured in the guest manager the following option:
- 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 18.104.22.168442)
- BUILD your register form with the right fields
Expiration Relative to Login, and Expiration Action
The expire_postlogin (Lifetime) field is used to specify an expiration time that takes effect after the first
login of a guest account.(#10442)
The do_expire (Expire Action) field is used to specify the action to take when the expiration time
(expire_time) is reached for a guest account. (#10442)

but if the condition is dat: specify an expiration time that takes effect after the "last login" of a guest account.
@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.
