We face a bit of confusion as after importing data from one old bug tracking system to JIRA Software 7.6.2, some got twisted, e.g. [click here] somehow became a link like click here, [ ] in original text disappeared.
I believe there must be a solution to prevent this kind of 'misleading' cases, so reach your help , please ?
I also want to know where to find the whole list of those special characters so we can conduct further testing in order to point them out for attention ?
I believe the reason this is happening is because it's converting the 's to a hyperlink per the way JIRA's markup works.
Can you test something and try to escape the  characters on a small subset and see if that works:
also discovered that some bullets not shown properly , so here is the argument: should we use default type (not wiki style) or wiki style ?
the original description we are trying to move over to jira containing some special text, such as [ ] , 1,2,3 (bullets)
right now, as default (not wiki style) we get [ ] , but lost 1,2,3
