I'm kind of torn between the two methods - John's has the advantage that it isn't dependent upon the mechanism by which someone creates a login ticket so should be more universal (e.g. for us), but Will's has the advantage that it's perhaps easier to understand for the less specialist eprints dev / admin. I.e. it doesn't use the magic of triggers, and it uses a date format that can be easily read rather than epoch timestamp (which apparently not everyone tracks on a daily basis) - Alan (2018-04-25 14:12:30z+01:00)

Code queries

John, Are you deliberately storing just the expiry date of the login ticket rather than the specific login time? Grand scheme I don't suppose it makes a lot of difference if there's an extra 7 days in the delete check. - Alan
