We have recently had a clean-up of our states in DevOps, but now we're facing a strange problem:

 

Trying to set up our boards to match our new states, we're missing a state when trying to map a column to a state. For instance, our work item type Feature has the state "In progress".

 

This hasn't been hidden and can be used as expected when setting states on individual work items and shows up in backlogs and queries.

 

However, when we try to create a column in our board that should be mapped to "In progress", this isn't an option:

The same is true for several other work item types. The state hasn't been mapped to any other columns and I don't see any reason why the state shouldn't be selectable.

 

Any ideas what is going on here?
