How to Export and then Import Info Path form in SharePoint Online?

While I was working with the project for one of my client. I got a requirement to make Info Path form work with the SharePoint Online. As you all may know that Info Path forms are bit tricky unless you have good understanding about that and how they work.

I was working on a provider hosted app. The main usage of this app is to convert the Info Path form in MVC based form and mimic the actual flow of data from Initialization of process to the Finalized/Completed the process.

To achieve this, I have a console application which will read the infopath as xml from sharepoint 2013 on premise site and convert them to the appropriate record for my new SharePoint Online module.

My Console application also export the attachments from the Info Path forms and save them in a document library with the main list column as lookup.

I know this whole conversation can make you confuse.


Let me know if you like to have a look in the console application and a code. I will be happy to assist you on that..
