You can use BambooAuthenticationContext to retrieve the current user.

You have an example?

Unfortunately, I do not have anything that I can share. It is pretty straight forward though. Inject the service like any other service and invoke the getUser method to retrieve the logged in user.

getUser returns - null. It's doesn't work

What's the scope of your plugin, when it works?

If it has UI interaction then BambooAuthenticationContext will have logged in user information, if there's some background activity, there will be no user information

Plugin send message to SOAP server and receives a response that outputs to the log. For authorization in the web service it is necessary to get the user name authorized in bamboo and run the deploy plan with the plugin task

It means user starts deployment so you should begin from that point.

Plugin should add information about logged in user who started deployment, this data is stored in CommonContext which is available for you plugin task if it implements  com.atlassian.bamboo.task.RuntimeTaskDataProvider interface (as a reference on implementation and configuration see com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.artifact.ArtifactDownloaderRuntimeDataProvider). During this phase you put username to DeploymentContext and then can use this information on execution phase. 

When your plugin task is being executed at agent it should read username from runtimeContext (taskContext.getRuntimeTaskContext()) and use for authorization to SOAP server

getRuntimeTaskContext is deprecated

I got the username so:

final String nameForSentence = deploymentTaskContext.getDeploymentContext().getTriggerReason().getNameForSentence();
String userLogin = nameForSentence.substring(nameForSentence.lastIndexOf(" ")+1);

Username is provided only by ManualBuilTriggerReason. So you may check that reason is of given type and then call reason.getUserName()

getRuntimeTaskContext is deprecated

It's deprecated for com.atlassian.bamboo.v2.build.CommonContext, but not for com.atlassian.bamboo.task.CommonTaskContext
