In the candidate object, click on the Workflows list and verify that the HackerRank assessment workflows are available:

Creating Tests in HackerRank for Work
Before you can use the integration to trigger HackerRank Test invites from Jobvite, you must create and publish the required Tests in HackerRank for Work.
- Log into the HackerRank for Work using your Company Admin user account.
- Create and publish the HackerRank Tests based on the specific job roles or technical skills expected in the candidates. To know more about creating and publishing a test, refer, Creating a New Test
- In Jobvite, you must associate the HackerRank Test IDs with Requisitions. Therefore, note the IDs for the required HackerRank Tests.
- Click on the Tests and open the required Test.
- Look for the 5-6 digit number in the URL, this is the Test ID. Note this ID for all the required Tests.
Associating Requisitions with HackerRank Test IDs
- In Jobvite, in the HackerRank Test ID field of the Requisition object, you must add the required Test IDs.
- Edit the HackerRank Test ID custom field to include the Test IDs and click on the Save button.
You can then assign one of the above HackerRank Test IDs to a Requisition. For candidate profiles associated with this Requisition, when the Workflow status is changed to "HackerRank Assessment", the event triggers invites for the HackerRank Test.
- Edit a Requisition and in the HackerRank Test ID field, select the ID of the required HackerRank Test and click on the Save button.
- In this manner, you can associate a particular HackerRank Test ID with all other Requisitions.
- Link the candidate profiles with the relevant Requisitions containing the HackerRank Test IDs.
When the candidate is ready to take an assessment, change the Candidate Workflow status to "HackerRank Assessment". The candidate will receive an email invite with a link to the Test for that specific requisition. Once the test is completed, the report will be automatically updated in the candidate record in Jobvite.
