What is best way to add same set of Fields mutiple time in JIRA 5.2?

I have a set of 4 fields which I want to replicate for 5 times on the same Tab.

Is there any best way to achieve it rather than created 4 fields - 5 times for this tab?

 

Thanks

No, there is now way, only manual work. JIRA has some problems with this stuff, there is also a painfull problem with making a project copy

That's really painful.

No, you can only display a field once on a view screen.  If you want to repeat a field, you need to hack the core of JIRA to enable it.

Also, don't do it.  Humans get very confused and upset when you do this.  If you have a field that appears on tab 1 and then on tab 4, a human might change it in tab 1, move on to tab 4 and change it again, thinking it's something else, because it's on a different tab. Then complain that it's lost the data they put in tab 1.  Seriously, software that does this is broken.
