Kibana markdown not parsing parentheses properly


#1

Hi all

I reallize Kibana is using the github flavor of markdown. Even still, I'm noticing an inconsistency in creating links, when the urls contain nested parentheses. Kibana markdown widget parses the url up to the first closing paren ')', and prints the rest as normal text.

We are running v4.1.4.

This is a known issue: https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/2818 Please feel free to weigh in on the discussion.

Workaround is to manually encode the URL, replacing "(" with "%28" and ")" with "%29".
