Two layers to this one...

1. The velocity fields are in a plugin called the Jira Toolkit, so you should be looking to install that

2. The velocity fields from that plugin were removed for security reasons.

Your non-coding options are to accept the security risk (not recommended) and install an older version of the plugin, or to use message fields instead (which are not as useful because they don't do velocity...)

As I already said, you can risk installing an old insecure version of the plugin, which then cannot be ugpraded (and will eventually stop working in later versions of Jira), OR you can drop the usage of the fields and do something else.

Unless you are willing to do some coding.

if jira 5.0 is not support, these fields, how to manage & what are the options have, when upgrade jira 4.x.x to jira 5.0
