Quick Start

Ensure Input System was installed in Package Manager.

1, Select Player Object.

2, Add Player Input Component.

3, Create default actions.

when Save window pop up, choose directory for saving.

4, Open Input Action Asset.

Now you would see default actions.

5, Check Generate C# Class in Inspector panel of Input Action Asset, then click Apply.

Now you would see the C# script.
There’re codes which were generated automatically.

6, Then we add callback functions of Move and Fire actions.

Add a script named PlayerMovement for Player first.
Remove PlayerInput Component which was added previously.
Then add code of action callback:

using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;
using UnityEngine.InputSystem;

public class PlayerMovement : MonoBehaviour
{
    private TestInput Input;

    private Vector2 movementInput;

    void Awake()
    {
        Input = new TestInput();
        Input.Player.Move.performed += ctx => OnMovementChanged(ctx);
        Input.Player.Fire.performed += ctx => OnFire();
    }

    void OnMovementChanged(InputAction.CallbackContext Context)
    {
        movementInput = Context.ReadValue<Vector2>();
        Debug.Log("Move Direction: " + movementInput.ToString());
    }

    // Start is called before the first frame update
    void Start()
    {
    }

    // Update is called once per frame
    void Update()
    {
    }

    void FixedUpdate()
    {
    }

    private void OnEnable()
    {
        Input.Enable();
    }

    private void OnDisable()
    {
        Input.Disable();
    }

    void OnFire()
    {
        Debug.Log("Fire+++++++");
    }
}

Now when press Arrow Key or click left mouse button, OnMovementChanged() and OnFire() would be fired.

Another way to register callback functions.
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;
using UnityEngine.InputSystem;

public class PlayerMovement : MonoBehaviour
{
    [Space]
    [SerializeField]
    private InputActionAsset InputAssetRef;
    
    private Vector2 movementInput;

    void Awake()
    {
        InputActionMap PlayerInputMap = InputAssetRef.FindActionMap("Player");

        InputAction MoveAction = PlayerInputMap.FindAction("Move");
        MoveAction.performed += ctx => OnMovementChanged(ctx);

        InputAction FireAction = PlayerInputMap.FindAction("Fire");
        FireAction.performed += ctx => OnFire();
    }

    void OnMovementChanged(InputAction.CallbackContext Context)
    {
        movementInput = Context.ReadValue<Vector2>();
        Debug.Log("Move Direction: " + movementInput.ToString());
    }

    // Start is called before the first frame update
    void Start()
    {
    }

    // Update is called once per frame
    void Update()
    {
    }

    void FixedUpdate()
    {
    }

    private void OnEnable()
    {
        InputAssetRef.Enable();
    }

    private void OnDisable()
    {
        InputAssetRef.Disable();
    }

    void OnFire()
    {
        Debug.Log("Fire+++++++");
    }
}

Then specify the Input Action Asset in Inspector panel
