Move - migrate 2013

Question asked by taenkeren on Mar 31, 2018

Just build a new SharePoint 2016 farm and installed Nintex Forms & Workflows, made a "default" installation (created new NintexContent database and mapped it to SP content Database etc. - so its all 'Empty* - a 'clean' install, and its running fine    


Instead of re-building the workflows, I now need to move all the "old" Workflows from the *old" SharePoint 2013 farm to the new SharePoint 2016 farm. 

What is the recommended approach for this? 


  1. Do I at the "SQL level" - create a backup of the 2013 'old' Nintex database and restore/overwrite the new Nintex 2016 content database?  
  2. Do I use a 3' party tool - like ShareGate, and manually migrate each list?
  3. Other suggestion? 


Anyone that can provide a "how-to" get this done the best way?
