How to: Migration of Workflow Constants from on premise to Office 365

Workflow constants are a feature available only in Nintex Workflow for SharePoint on premises, allowing you to store globally used workflow variables in a single place.

Nintex Workflow Migration from on premise to Office 365

Sharegate migration Nintex

Recently I’ve been involved in that project, where data and information that was being created for years in on premise SharePoints had to be migrated to the Sharepoint Online environment in Office 365. All migration was said to be a simple, straightforward and easy due to the usage of Sharegate, but… the real truth turned out to be way more dark.

Before the real migration started I sat down and started reading about the process and possible obstacles. I can now divide them into 3 groups:

  1. Limitations of Sharegate
  2. Limitations of SharePoint Online
  3. Limitations of Nintex for Office 365.

First things first. I will guide you through all and each from them.
