DevOps questions are those that help to assess the Linux skills of a candidate. When a candidate takes a test comprising DevOps questions, we set up their own sandbox Linux virtual machine to log in remotely. You can ask them to perform whatever tasks you like: install a package, create a file with certain contents, or perform an action with a specific tool like grep.
You can write a script to score candidates' performance or rely on the session playback to grade the test subjectively. The video playback feature lets you view if a candidate checked a manpage or knew how a tool worked from memory.
If there is a DevOps question is present in a test, the HackerRank Test interface automatically setups the environment for the candidate. It gives an in-browser terminal where the candidates can answer their questions.
