Hello @Shivakumar Hiremath ,

To my understanding, the initializer script will always run upon screen load. This means that it will overwrite any existing values that you have while editing.

Perhaps you can write a condition to check if the custom field is empty before setting the default value.

An example below:-

def description = getFieldById('description')
def descriptionValue = description.getValue()

def defaultText = "This is a default text."

if (descriptionValue.isEmpty()) {
description.setFormValue(defaultText)
}

Regards.
