Update feature type lifetime

PUT /api/admin/feature-types/:id/lifetime

Updates the lifetime configuration for the specified feature flag type. The expected lifetime is an integer representing the number of days before Unleash marks a feature flag of that type as potentially stale. If set to null or 0, then feature flags of that particular type will never be marked as potentially stale.

When a feature flag type's expected lifetime is changed, this will also cause any feature flags of this type to be reevaluated for potential staleness.
