How to Add Existing Issue to Kanban Board?

I need to add various arbitrary existing issues to my Kanban board. 

My understanding is that issues aren't manually added to boards. Rather, they automatically appear according to filter, correct?

In my board configure screen, i see "Filter". Not sure how to use this. 

Can i apply a label or other property to an issue to make it appear on a board?

You are correct, boards are configured to show issues based one the filter that the board is using. You have the option to change the filter so it brings in issues based on a label or any other fields. Your other option is to create the filter first, and then create a new board and when doing so, set it to use the filter you created.

i couldn't figure out how to filter on label.

labels = my-label or labels in (label1, label2) is how you filter based on a label.

it seems it's not working. i think i have the filter set up, and it seems to pull up several issues on the filter screen but i'm not seeing any issue on the Kanban. I thought i just have to make a filter to see them on Kanban.
