Kibana bootstrap needs sudo access


I setup the development environment on my mac according to guidelines:

While I was trying the command
yarn kbn bootstrap, it was generating the error:
EPERM: operation not permitted, chmod '/kibana/x-pack/node_modules/.bin/plugin-helpers'

Although it was fixed with sudo but I doubt that it went as expected. As a result I now also need to use sudo for yarn start command.

Should the sudo privileges be needed?

Sudo privileges should not be needed for this. You may have used them when cloning the repo which could have messed up the local copy. You can try redoing the steps.
