Story reports and instance refresh

Story reports do not get copied over as part of the Instance Refresh process to allow you to have the required set of stories selectively in the instance post refresh. You can move the reports from source to target, and can also keep a backup from the target instance prior to the Instance Refresh using the export/import functionality. This way you’d be selectively keep the desired Stories in the instance.
