Why is it not possible to create tasks out of transformation jobs by using the Web API? Is there any plan to support it in the future?
It does not seem logical for me to restrict the Web API to only create tasks out of orchestration jobs since in the Matillion Web App the user is allowed to create tasks out of both transformation and orchestration jobs.

You are right, Matillion does not allow launching transformation jobs when using Scheduler or SQS or the REST API.
This has always been the case may change in the future. I have raised a ticket requesting for a change (EMD-6393).
Thanks for the suggestion.
I will set the status of this ticket to resolved shortly since my initial question is answered. I will also keep an eye on the release notes regarding the change request when future versions of matillion are released.
