running debugger in VSC as sudo

Hi All,
I need to run the debugger in visual studio code as sudo, it connects to a usb sensor. Does anyone know how I can say start the debugger with sudo?
I have tried setting udev rules on the usb but try as I might can't get this to work.

You might want to start the whole Visual Studio as root user. (Don't forget 'xhost +localhost' beforehand.)
