Question

I have some more than 10 workflow custom actions created and using those in 2010 workflow. but my site is o365 site. Now sandbox solution is disabled, what is the best way to convert my codes and use that again in 2010 workflow? 

Few say go for Client side code and App model. but what exactly we can do with that ? If i have 2013 workflow i can create webservice and call that method from my 2013 workflow so no problem. but i have lot of 2010 workflows already running and most of them are using complex custom actions. 

So I can't convert my 2010 workflow to 2013 workflow, but want to call my custom actions now, thats it. Anyone have faced this problem or have an idea? 


Thanks, Saravanan PRS

Hi,

It seems you have to upgrade your sandbox solution, here is Sandbox solution transformation guidance for your reference.

As most of your code are about workflow, you could consider upgrade the workflow to SharePoint 2013 workflow.

You could follow the thread as beginning.

Saravanan-

You have ran out of options now, there is no exact alternative for 2010 custom actions. You need to transform your workflows to 2013 and use custom web services as you said or try options like Microsoft flow or third party tools like Nintex workflows.

Hi,

Yes, you don't have any option to use your custom action sandbox solution code in O365. You may try the "Microsoft Flow" as it require minimal development effort.
