Replacement for Velocity Custom Field (JIRA Toolkit Plugin)

Hi all,

With version 0.25 of the JIRA Toolkit Plugin, Atlassian removed the field types "Velocity Custom Field". We have a lot of custom fields of the type "Velocity processed Message Custom Field (for view)", which shows a link depending on the actual user and ticket. Example:

#set ($jiragroup = $jiraUserUtils.getGroupNamesForUser($authcontext.getLoggedInUser().getName()))
#if($jiragroup.contains("examplegroup"))
  <a href="link?issue=$issue">Example Link</a>
#else
  Forbidden
#end

Is there any replacement for this type of custom fields? Is there a way to do this without the plugin?

Thank you

I decided to use web fragments. I add the links in system-issueoperations-plugin.xml where i could use velocity.

You will have to wrap them into your own plugin I guess.
