the main issues you may run into are functional things, if you use(d) more than just plain "sql" in your application.
if you used some advanced and specific sql functions (like windowed functions), then mysql just does not have them.

if your application used stored procedures, you can be "lucky" to hide any such "sql things" into the procedure code, but there don't expect to find something easy to migrated stored procedures:

When a supported RDBMS product is being migrated, the MySQL Workbench Migration Wizard will automatically convert as much information as it can, but you may still be required to manually edit the automatically migrated schema for difficult cases, or when the default mapping is not as desired.

Generally speaking, only table information and its data are automatically converted to MySQL. Code objects such as views, stored procedures, and triggers, are not. But supported RDBMS products will be retrieved and displayed in the wizard. You can then manually convert them, or save them for converting at a later time.
