Open a project, goes to Board

After I create a project, I would expect that I can navigate to the project and it would show me the backlog for the project.  Instead when I do that, click on the project and click backlog, it takes me to the board that contains the project (and other projects) and shows me the backlog for the board.  Do I need to create a board for every project in order to be able to see the projects backlog?  I know I can create a filter to show that, but when I click on project and then backlog, you would expect to see a projects backlog, not a boards backlog.

Sorry Mark, that's the correct behavior. The Purpose of the board is to show the Project contents. Yes, you can do an issues search/filter but the project wants to display it's contents with a board. And setting up a new project will also automatically generate a board.
