Does Fuel absolutely require root to run?

I'm being told my Mirantis that Fuel has to run as true root. Not sudo. That concerns me. Is that really true?

Not clear what is concerning you. Do you mean the CLI command fuel?

It is against our security organization's policy to do anything you don't absolutely have to (i.e. initial installs and setup of the OS) as true root. sudo allows for audit trails which are required. Bypassing that is an issue for us.

This is from the source documentation on the most recent release. You set the Root password and execute as root. (
