Markdown description method for file links in power automate approval function

I use Button Flows for document approval with some function implemented in the Power Automate. When I create a file link for a document, "Markdown" description is used in the "Detail" column of "Approval". During the function test I found some links are activated but the others are not activated. Is there any rules or restriction for Markdown description to create links? At the moment, a file path with "space" or "parentheses" seems not be activated. The examples are followings (The first square braket is deleted intentionally);

 

links](file://\\aaa\bbb\ccc.docx) <- activated

links](file://\\aaa\bbb\cc c.docx) <- not activated

links](file://\\aaa\bbb\c(c)c.docx) <- not activated

 

If anyone knows the prohibited description behavior for Markdown, please advise any website or books to learn them.

I have the same issue if the URL link has brackets.  For example,

[Policy document](https://sharepoint.com/sites/documents/policies/Policy%20-%20Policy%20(March%2021).PDF)

 

Result is: 

Policy document](https://sharepoint.com/sites/documents/policies/Policy%20-%20Policy%20(March%2021).PDF)
