Nintex / SharePoint upgrade


My team is embarking on moving from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016 with Nintex. They want to move content on an individual basis.

However, we also need to move running workflows and keep these intact.

What's the process of moving Nintex workflows and lists from SP2010 to a SharePoint 2016 environment? Need to ensure the workflows/lists remain with the correct status

Re: Nintex / SharePoint upgrade



I spoke to a resource here and it was advised that if you follow a DB detach-attach upgrade path from 10 to 13 to 16 for both your SharePoint and Nintex environments respectively, the inflight workflows should transfer without issues unless there are any actions that are deprecated in Nintex and/or Microsoft SharePoint as you follow that path. It is recommended that you test the migration in a test environment if possible.  Keep in mind too, if you are using a migration tool, no in-flight workflows will be migrated. 


I'm being fairly general here, so I also suggest that you call in to our Support team just to verify and get more guidance as you move forward.
