How can I add the Description field to an eazyBI report?

Since eazyBI doesn't store Description, Comments nor Attachments, how can I add the Description field to an eazyBI report?

There are some examples about how to extract comments with code and JMWE, but I've found no ways to get the Description.

Any ideas?

The eazyBI Support Team solved this question (thanks Martins!):

It is possible to import issue Description from JIRA into eazyBI by using JIRA MISC calculated custom fields.

In order to do that, at first, you could create a new JIRA MISC calculated custom field (with text type):

custom field JIRA.jpg

And use this following formula in the field description (you should note the field ID that would be needed in later steps):

custom field for description.jpg

 

<!-- @@Formula:
description = issue.getIssueObject().description;
if (description == null) return null;
description; -->

 

jira issue - custom field.jpg

Next, you could open your eazyBI advanced settings and add these lines where you place your field ID (the 5digit number from URL of your custom field) instead of NNNNN

[jira.customfield_NNNNN]
data_type = "text"

Then you could open your eazyBI import settings and select this new custom field to import as a property:

import as property.jpg

After import, you should be able to find new measure in "Measure" dimension (under calculated members > Issue properties) that should return issue description when "Issue" dimension and issue level is used in rows:
