In case you would like to migrate from an On-premise SharePoint to a SharePoint Online, but you don't know how to do that, rest assured that it is quite easy. In fact, you only have to use another adapter for it and that's it. Nevertheless, you will find a short tutorial on how to change the adapter hereinafter. 

Information Hint!
The new adapter does not require a Sync Adapter anymore, whereas for the old adapter which you probably still have configured the Sync Adapter is required. 

The new adapter can also be configured for an On-premise SharePoint which is quite practical as you only have to change the option whether it is on-premise or online. As you now may have realized there are two different starting points, namely, you still have the Sharepoint 2010/2013/2016 (deprecated) adapter in use or you already use the SharePoint 2013/2016/Online which is the one without the Sync Adapter

1. SharePoint 2013/2016/Online

If you already use the SharePoint 2013/2016/Online adapter you simply have to select SharePoint Online instead of On-premise SharePoint. Don't be alarmed that the domain is not visible anymore - with SharePoint Online you don't need a domain. These are all changes which have to be made in order to use SharePoint Online

2. Sharepoint 2010/2013/2016 (deprecated)

With this adapter it is not possible to connect SharePoint Online, therefore you have to configure the other SharePoint adapter (SharePoint 2013/2016/Online). The configuration of the connection data is basically the same, you just have to select the SharePoint you want to connect (can be an On-premise SharePoint as well). If you want to connect SharePoint Online, the box for the domain won't be visible as you don't need the domain for SharePoint Online. The other thing which is different from the deprecated version is the URL because you don't need the URL of the list anymore but just the URL of the SharePoint website.

With Load Lists, all lists which have been created under that URL are loaded and you simply select the list you want to map.
