It happens automatically.

A board selects a set of issues.  If you create a new issue, it needs to match the criteria for that board.  I suspect your board says something like "project = X" and you've created the issue in project Y, so it's not in the backlog.  Or "project = X and status != new" and the new issue is in status new.   Or... well, there's loads.

yes thankyou. i  neeed to meet the criteria as per the doc as i have custom workflow and i have changed the default state and transition and it was not matching to board column criteria
