Hi, I bought my brand new Chipkit network shield after unbox I found that it is not recognized by mpide(0023) as well as device manager. But I checked the board with multimeter and it reads 5V from jumper to ground. I also shorted the microUSB pin with jumper correctly. Please help!!

You're trying to plug the shield's USB into the computer? That will only do anything if you have a sketch installed on your board that uses the USB.

For that you can't use MPIDE. MPIDE has been retired many years ago. You need to use the Arduino IDE or UECIDE and make sure that you have the right USB settings selected in the options menu.

And then of course actually use that USB actively in your sketch.

Sir ,I am really worried that only older version of MPIDE has CAN support and also is it correct to try uploading my sketch to max32 board via its USB and then attaching the shield? Thank you

The IDE does not have anything to do with CAN support. It may be that the library you are using is really old though and doesn't adhere to the Arduino API standards (> 1.0.0), in which case you should be getting the authors of the library to update it to make it work. MPIDE is old. Very old. I think it has a very very old version of the Arduino API, which you really really don't want to be using (many libraries will just not work with it, and USB support is basic and pretty useless).
