How to parse text from description field to comment field.

Hi, I'm trying to parse text data in description field and put the parsed result on comment using Jsoup. My approach is to get html data by tags(i.e <a>, <p>, <link>) and parse them. 

2 things that need to be solved.

1. It says I have to log in or get authentication whenever I try to get <p> tag data. Other tags work fine. So my question is, how can I get <p> tags with or without getting authentication? If I need an authentication, how can I get authenticated using Jira rest client in JAVA.

2. I also looked at Jira Smart Values and automation but I couldn't find what I wanted(parse description and throw the result to comment field). It would be very nice if you guys can help me out on this.

Let me know if you need more info or clear details. Thank you.
