I think it'd be useful to be able to manually trigger an operation list while keeping the scheduler disabled. When making changes to an IAM solution specifically, it is usually desirable to manually run operations to ensure that everything is functioning before enabling the scheduled tasks. Some clients have a number of powershell scripts etc that are run alongside imports/exports which makes triggering the process in FIM directly a hassle.
This would allow consultants to run targeted operation lists on certain systems, without triggering exports to systems that a scheduled delta cycle may. It can also be difficult to disable the deltas...I had a situation just now where upon starting the scheduler the next delta cycle was set to start in 1 second, not giving me time to disable the operaton.
