Why do test cases show in the Backlog?

When reviewing the Agile Backlog - all the test cases that I have created in Zephyr are showing.  Test cases are not a backlog item and would be applicable across Sprints.  How do I get them to not show.

Use Filter Query in Agile Board Configure?

 issuetype != test case

Hi Ollie can you please tell me how to 'Add' filters for backlog.

Go to the board configuration -> quick filters

Hi Nick , I am facing the same issue. I am not able to find the Board Configuration.

You may be using a Business board, these do not have configuration.  Or you're not a board admin.

I did apply this filter and it worked - Thank you! 

I would like to understand one step further though. Why would tests be in a backlog in the first place?  What is that logic in JIRA?

By default, all the issue will be displayed in the backlog,It all depends on the filter Settings
