How to migrate SharePoint 2013 workflows from on-premises to power automate,
Please help me with high level steps which are needed.
What we need to do if we have thousands of SharePoint workflows from source side ( On premises ) , do we need to configure everything manually in the power automate?

    @sns ,

    There is no direct way to migrate SharePoint 2013 workflows from on-premises to power automate.

    It's necessary to manually rebuild flows within Microsoft Power Automate in SharePoint online.

    More information about flow terminologies, triggers, and actions for your reference:

    @Naveed ,

    Please check the new feature that will be released in 2022 that will migrate and convert your SharePoint Server on-premises workflows into Microsoft 365 as Power Automate flows.

    Hi Wang,

    Thank you for letting me know. I just roughly gone through articles u provided.

    so this new feature going to allow bulk ( thousand of workflows) to migrate to power automate at one shot?
    If so , To achieve this task, are we going to use PowerShell from June 2022? and then later is it going to be with SharePoint Migration Tool?
    What is the technical name for this new feature?
