SharePoint Workflow Associations using PowerShell

When migrating from one version of SharePoint to another such as 2010 to 2013, there are many aspects of that process that administrators have had to resolve. Migration is more than moving documents from one version to another, but rather it involves moving and sometimes repairing solutions, services, content, and branding. A full risk assessment is highly recommended to weigh the potential benefits over any and all of the costs.

Session Summary:

In this session, Robert will discuss the PowerShell solution CalPERS developed for SharePoint 2010 and is subsequently being ported for 2013, that allows CalPERS administrators to meet the needs of their customers quickly. The SharePoint 2010 script replaced what once took a full day of administrators manual effort to create a fully branded customized subsite down to 10 minutes through the use of the script.

One of the challenges that Robert identified in his rewrite was how workflows were not being associated. In this session, Robert will walk you through the associations and explain the subtle differences he learned between these two environments.

About the Speaker:

Robert Hills, a retired Navy Veteran, entered the IT field in 2008 when he was invited by his company to learn.Net Programming. During the first year of his career, Robert became well-acquainted with Visual Studio, SQL Server, and JQuery via JavaScript. In 2009, Robert was first introduced to SharePoint and began working with the platform on a regular basis.

Currently, Robert has duo roles at CalPERS, one as an Administrator (utilizing PowerShell) and the other as a Developer. Over the last eight years, Robert has developed many data solutions in and out of SharePoint via SOAP services using Visual Studio, SQL Server, and SharePoint Designer.
