Is there a parameter that allows square brackets in an issue?

It appears that Jira converts Square Brackets, [ ], into links. However, our query language has square brackets, how can we add the sqaure brackets into an issue without having it change to a link? Is there a parameter we can enable/disable to allow square brackets without the conversion?

Hi Jerome,

You should put your code within {code} blocks, e.g.

{code}
arr = [1, 2, 3]
puts arr[0]
{code}

Alternatively you can escape the square brackets with a backslash (\).
