We are using jira server (8.13.0) self hosted
We would like to activate the Backlog view on a Kanban Board (created by a JQL filter, which has tasks from multiple projects)
Unfortunately I am still unable to find the option to find the activate the backlog view ?
Is the feature not available for Jira server (self hosted) edition ?
Finally found a solution after contacting the Atlassian Support team and raising a support ticket.
Seems that for Jira Server edition, we need to enable a Dark feature option (in the admin settings) to enable the Kanban View.
By adding these 2 dark features on the same page, it is enabled. (refer screenshot for settings at our system earlier & the option that needs to be added)
Then checking the Boards -> Configure -> Columns page again for the backlog configuration it now appears.
To enable/disable Dark Features you need to be JIRA admin. First, go to the page: <Jira_URL>/secure/SiteDarkFeatures!default.jspa .
If this is not enabled, you don’t see option to enables Kanban backlog. You can enable it by adding it the box given in the bottom of screenshot.
Hope this helps some one else too.
The backlog view can be activated inside the boards settings. Once in the settings proceed to the columns settings. There should be a backlog column where you can drag your desired backlog status into that column to make the view appear.
If you don’t have access to the settings you will need your JIRA admin to do it for you.
The feature is available in on-prem instances also.

@DeepakMurugesan , for simplified workflow, yes, there are conditions. Refer to Project pre-requisites in https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwareserver/using-the-simplified-workflow-938845286.html#UsingtheSimplifiedWorkflow-SwitchingtoSimplifiedWorkflow
