Do you allow bots to view your site? In ACP->Manage bots you should be able to see which bots have visited and when.

Generally, it should happen organically if you board gets linked and referenced from elsewhere.

You can also read through Google Search Console and Search Console Help for direct engagement with Google search and some tools that might help you.

and remember that there must be some content within your forums that google finds valuable, otherwise there would be no point in showing your forums in search results
