Overview: Migrate SharePoint Server 2010 workflows to Power Automate


This feature is currently in public preview, and subject to change.

Microsoft removed SharePoint Server 2010 workflow services from existing tenants on November 1, 2020. We recommend that you move your classic SharePoint Server workflows to Power Automate flows.

Using the SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT), you can now migrate:

  • SharePoint Server 2010 out of the box (OOTB) approval and collect feedback workflows to PowerAutomate.
  • List and library "out-of-box" (OOTB) approval workflows
  • Workflow definitions and associations


Workflows created with SharePoint Designer or SharePoint Server 2013 are currently not supported.

How does it work?

Step What happens
Step 1: Configure endpoints and Power Automate Configure required endpoints. If your tenant has never used Power Automate, configure it before you begin migration.
Step 2: Migrate workflows Using SPMT, migrate your SharePoint Server workflows.
Step 3: Activate workflows Sign in to Power Automate to activate the newly migrated workflows.

Get started

To get started:

Go to the Migration center in the SharePoint admin center, and sign in with an account that has admin permissions for your organization.

Make sure that you have:

  • Access to the destination: You must either be a global admin or OneDrive/SharePoint admin to the Microsoft 365 tenant where you want to migrate your content.

  • Access to the source: Have SharePoint Server account credentials that have read access to any workflow you plan to migrate.

  • Prerequisites installed: Make sure you have the necessary prerequisites installed.
