Power Platform migration tool

Occasional Contributor

What is the best way to migrate Power Apps, Flow and Power BI from one O365 tenant to another? I couldn't find any document explaining migration approach. Is there any third party tool available?

@Justin J I don't know about Power BI but you can export each flow or Power App as a zip package that can then be imported on the new tenant. There is a menu option on each flow or app for this.

Thanks @RobElliott Later I found this article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/move-environment-tenant We can submit a request to Microsoft to move environment from one tenant to another, which is more efficient than migrating one App/Flow at a time.

@Justin J- Does this mean the apps and flow were also migrated from the same environment ?

We are planning to make use of this and would like to know your experience on the same. 

I have already submitted a blog on this. Link given below.

It gives me immense pleasure to inform you all that we have successfully launched the 1st release of SharePoint Workflow to Power Automate Migration tool (beta version) which is going to be a definite game changer. This tool would give clients the desired flexibility as it has the in-built capability to automatically migrate both SharePoint designer workflows as well as OOTB built-in SharePoint workflows to Power Automate & therefore can save a significant effort , cost & time. This tool would also enhance migration accuracy & therefore can certainly be a real value proposition to the client in terms of both effort , cost & time.

This tool would automatically connect & loop through all the SharePoint designer workflows in order to retrieve all the triggers, actions as well as conditions , associated with the workflows & ultimately would intelligently chose the right Power Automate actions to transform them. Currently we do not have apple to apple mappings between every SharePoint designer workflow action & corresponding Power Automate action. Therefore this tool would do the mapping & transformation indigenously to create the exact workflow structure in power automate. Also it would be an interactive experience for the users as they would be able to see a detailed progress status of the running migration job. Even on successful execution of the migration job, a comprehensive report / dashboard would get generated, reflecting the number of successful & failed migrations along with appropriate error messages.

This tool would even support bulk creation of workflows in Power Automate. For example, if there is a requirement to create 100 approval workflows (say) against 100 different list / library, the tool would create a generic workflow template & accordingly would ask the user to key in the count (100 in our example). Ultimately based on user input, the tool would automatedly create the desired number of approval workflows at one go. Once the workflows are created in Power Automate portal, few minor manual adjustments could be needed to ultimately get them running.
Not sure about Power BI. You can migrate Canvas apps and Cloud flows using Flows and Power Apps Migrator https://github.com/Zerg00s/FlowPowerAppsMigrator


Download the latest release and run the Migrate-Packages.bat batch file. Then follow the instructions on the screen. You can even migrate multiple apps, flows and solutions at the same time.

Full disclosure: I wrote this tool, but it's completely free. It used PowerShell PnP under the hood to connect to SharePoint Online sites.
