Dynamic URL in description field of Trello Card when using api Edited

I am using the API to create and maintain Trello cards from our help desk system.  I the description, I am trying create a hyperlink in description field. 


The hyper link should be something like:


But what I am getting in Trello is:

[Click Here|



I think the issue comes from when I post to the API:

[Click Here|]

@Dean CoveyWhen trying to put a link into the description, you must take care of URL escapes.

In your case, it's a bit more involved, as the URL also contains a hash (#).  My recommendation would be to first to create the url as a string only in the description.  Once that works, I'd try different escapes in order to get it working as a hyperlink.
