How Jira Kanban project's Story maps to Kanban team in Jira Align; pls suggest Edited

We have Jira and Jira Align integration done.

We have created a Kanban project in Jira & it has been mapped to Jira Align via

1) Jira Settings->Manage Project (Added the Jira Kanban project)

2) Jira Integration->Projects (Added Jira Kanban project)

We have created a Kanban Team in Jira Align.

My question is how a Story from Jira Kanban project gets assigned to the Kanban team in Jira Align?

In case of Jira Scrum project, we add Scrum Board  & map it to Agile team via (Jira Management->Jira Boards) 

Do we need to add Kanban board & map it to Kanban team via (Jira Management->Jira Boards) similar to Jira Scrum project; pls. confirm or is there any other way to Map Jira Kanban project to Jira Align Kanban team?

Boards must be mapped in order for the data to flow to the Jira Align team. 

Since Jira doesn't *ACTUALLY* have a "team" (it's a field, at best, when set up) the board is what is used to indicate the Team to Jira Align. 

Here's an easy way to remember it: 

Project = Backlog (which may be shared) 

Board = Team (the work being done in a sprint or kanban flow by a select group of people -aka the Team) 

A project may exist to serve one or more "teams" but the teams WORK from the jira board, not the project. ....  make sense?
