How to get logged in user with latest SDK?

The method getLoggedInUser() is deprecated. ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()

How can i get the logged in User object?

The correct way to do this is to use

User user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser().getDirectoryUser();

Use getUser which returns ApplicationUser object. This is to support the renaming of users.

My existing plugin has broken because I want User object to set as assignee for issue but i cannot set ApplicationUser object. Could you please let me know how to achieve this?

User user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();
try {

Try with the following code

try {
User projectLead=issue.getProjectObject().getProjectLead().getDirectoryUser();
