Jira Agile backlog is empty under planning ...

I am evaluating the JIRA Agile and I have configured a Srum board with a filter that produces 118 results. However when I go into the planning on the board I only see 5 items which have a version attached to them. I have selected 'all issues' under version which shows the same five and I have selected the specific version which show the same five. I also have selected 'issues without versions' under the Version tab but this show nothing in the backlog.

Is something wrong or do I have to update the other 113 items that match my query to contain a version? If this is the case how is this planning your releases?

This did it I have an extra Status that wasn't mapped.

Thank you Danilo!
