And use this following formula in the field description (you should note the field ID that would be needed in later steps):
description = issue.getIssueObject().description;
if (description == null) return null;
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:
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:
