Data factory should be able to use VNet without resorting to self hosted
Self hosted makes a lot of sense when integrating on-premise data, however it's a shame to need to maintain a self-hosted integration runtime VM when wishing to leverage the extra security of a VNet i.e. firewalled storage accounts etc.
Ideally the azure managed integration runtimes would be able to join a vnet on demand.
Or add mapping data flows and wrangling data flows to self-hosted.
Azure IR has to be able to join vnet.
At the moment it cannot connect to any resource behind firewall.
Self hosted is not allow to use Data Flow.

Very important to add this feature to ADF , this will enable connection through secure vnet for all paas services without having VM to host self hosted -IR or other transit channels.
This is a very important feature for enterprise client. We are waiting for the update. Please post any update that you may have regarding the road map.

Connect to on-premise resource from Azure via VNET is important part of our projects. Some of our customers use only Linux or MacOS for servers and laptops, so we can't use DMG for connecting to internal Oracle and move data to Azure. Moreover, I think connection to on-premise resources via secured VNET would be faster and secured instead of using intermediate tool.
This functionality extremely important for enterprise.
We have created a virtual network (Site-to-Site) to integrate our internal resources with Azure. We are unable to utilize this network for ADF. As a result, we have to create a server with DMG installed and place it in the DMZ zone of our network (with port 8050 and 433 open).
If we can configure ADF to use the virtual network, then the server can remain secure behind the firewall.
This is a very similar to the suggestion in Azure SQL Database: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/217321-sql-database/suggestions/5537689-allow-sql-database-to-join-virtual-network-vpn
