This idea has been submitted here Download discussion board posts but it looks like the workaround through Canvas Data is still the only solution here.
You would need Admin access to your Canvas instance in order to configure Canvas Data. If you're not an Admin yourself, contact one at your institution. They will know what to do
You can find more information on the community page for Canvas Data Canvas Data Services - make sure to check out the Canvas Data Welcome Kit!. This was a good place for me to start.
There are also some handy articles that help understand the concept:What is Canvas Data? and How do I use the Canvas Data Portal for an account? .
James Jones published a blog post explaining How to Count Student Discussion Posts - there is some valuable information in there too.
