Is it possible to migrate User Defined Actions?
Yes. All levels will be migrated. To perform the migration, you will need the correct level of permissions.

ShareGate's migration tool will migrate your workflows from SharePoint on-premises to Microsoft 365 and convert most workflow actions to work at the destination. For a list of supported actions, see Nintex migration support.
Will ShareGate's migration tool migrate running workflows?
No. The migration of running Nintex workflows is not supported.
Why do users lose access to Nintex Live Forms at the destination?
If you have users in the form's Live Settings to give them access to the form, they must have an email address set in their profile at the destination for Nintex to allow them access to the form. To verify this, click the address book button and search for your user to see if he appears in the email column.
