Sorry about that.  When I designed the intel framework, I ran into a few conceptual issues that I just offset to a later date.  I have done some work to address the shortcoming and I’m hoping to get it merged back in for the 2.4 release.  I’ll give some guidance now if you’d like to work with it today…

Clone this repository into your site/ directory…
	cd <prefix>/share/bro/site/
	git clone https://github.com/sethhall/intel-ext.git intel-ext

Add the “intel-ext” module to your local.bro…
	echo “@load intel-ext” >> local.bro

Write and load a script that looks like this…

redef record Intel::Info += {
	descriptions: set[string] &optional &log;

event Intel::extend_match(info: Intel::Info, s: Intel::Seen, items: set[Intel::Item]) &priority=0
	for ( item in items )
		if ( ! info?$descriptions )
			info$descriptions = set();

		add info$descriptions[item$meta$desc];
====end script====

This will add descriptions from all of your intel in a log named intel-ext.log.  Let me know if it works for you.
