Rails one-click application restart server without password

Hello, I’m trying to setup automatic deploy with capistrano for one-click rails application.

I have a rails user which I added to sudo group.

The problem is, that when I want to restart the application using systemctl restart unicorn I need to provide a password - I would like to bypass that, so if I am logged in as proper user, the password won’t be required again. This would restart my serwer without need to log in each time I make changes in the application.

Could you help me with that?

But also maybe there is better way to do that? Could you please give me some advise?

There’s an option in sudoers that allows the user to sudo without password - NOPASSWD
