Generally, you can set a variable indicating if your custom function is
invoked first time during the bulk action. This variable can be set to
nil in :before advice for org-agenda-bulk-action. Then, you can check
the variable value in your custom function. If it is nil, it is the
first invocation and you run the interactive version then setting the
variable to 't. The variable will have 't value in all the following
invocations and your function can run non-interactively.

Instead of advice, you can also provide a simple patch implementing the
described functionality in org-agenda-bulk-action. I do support adding
this functionality to org.

Best,
Ihor
