Yes, you can enable the "Run with root privileges" option in your run/debug configuration (`Run | Edit Configurations... `), see But you might face the issue with debugging as root, unfortunately - If you face it, feel free to comment or upvote the issue in order to get updates. See if you are not familiar with YouTrack.
