PostFunction currentUser

I have the following line of code

String currentUser = ((WorkflowContext) transientVars.get("context")).getCaller();

Then I proceed to call

(comment != "") && commentManager.create(parent, currentUser, comment, true);

My question is, that `CommentManager` now requires the `applicationUser` object instead of a `String`. So how do I get the `currentUser` that would return the `applicationUser`.

Once you get the currentUser then you can import UserManager and use

getUser(String userName) to get ApplicationUser and pass it to CommentManager

For newer JIRA version you can try - 

getUserByName(userName) in UserManager instead of getUser(userName)

So something like,

ComponentAccessor.UserManager.getUserByName(currentUser) ?

ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName(currentUser)
