Hi Krishna,

the 'self_checkout' permission is not needed by the normal patrons, it's
meant for your self checkout librarian user that you can use in
combination with the PatronSelfCheckID and PatronSelfCheckPass

Normal users don't need any permissions in order to be able to use the
self checkout functionality.

Hope that helps,
