Why can I only open a Impediment or Task from the sprint board when selecting the + on a Product backlog item?

When I click on the plus sign "+" on a product backlog item in teh aprint board, it only gives me a list with impediment or task.  I want to see a bug on there.  This is the behavior from the planning board.  How can I add it to the list?  I do not readily see how from the custom mapping file.

    Hi Eric,

    The list only displays the work items types for which the state is mapped to one of the column of the sprint backlog when it is created. For example, a new bug work item type is in the "New" state when it is created but in the Scrum working process template, this state is not mapped to any of the columns.

    Adding a column mapping the "New" or mapping the state to an already existing column should make the bug work item type appear in the list.

    I went to our custom mapping file and for the Column "Not Started"  I added the state "NEW", but it still does not provide me with a "bug" on the list when I click on the "+" for a product backlog item which displayed on teh page as a parent PBI. These PBI display the child below, I just can't create a child "Bug" from here. Also, a PBI is not showing up on the dropdown.  Only Impediment and Task.

     

    How do I correct this issue.

     

     

    <Column ColumnType="Not Started" AssigneeRestriction="Unassigned" AutoAssign="true">
        <ColumnStates>
        
         <WorkItemTypeState WorkItemType="Product Backlog Item">
          <States>
           <State>New</State>
           <State>Approved</State>
           <State>Reopened</State>
          </States>
         </WorkItemTypeState>
         
         <WorkItemTypeState WorkItemType="Impediment">
          <States>
           <State>Open</State>
          </States>
         </WorkItemTypeState>
         <WorkItemTypeState WorkItemType="Task">
          <States>
           <State>To Do</State>
          </States>
         </WorkItemTypeState>
         <WorkItemTypeState WorkItemType="Bug">
          <States>
              <State>New</State>
           <State>Approved</State>
           <State>Reopened</State>
          </States>
         </WorkItemTypeState>
        </ColumnStates>
       </Column>nd added the following code:

    My apologies.  the file transfer mechanism to my remote server was NOT overwriting the file.  I deleted it and recopied the version listed above and it is correct.  My mistake.  I appreciate your help.
