Initializer executed multiple times when updating issue

Hi,

When I edit and update an issue, the initializer is ran multiple times. It is not convenient as I conditionnally display a warning message. The initializer is us usually around 5 times (sometimes less, sometimes more, seems random). As as result, the message appears multiple times and covers a large part of the screen.

This is my code :

int cfId = 12345
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
CustomField cfObject = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(cfId)
def cfValue = underlyingIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfObject)

if (cfValue = "Custom Value triggering message"){
UserMessageUtil.warning("This incident has been created by a VIP")
}

Is there a way to execute the initializer only once ?

Thanks.
