Whats This Screw on top of the Strut?

I bought a pair of used B6's and one of them on the top hat is missing it.
I have my stock strut that has it. Should I transfer it over? that would be a PITA. I heard it was for wheel alignment, is it absolutely necessary?

Not needed. Most of us remove it when looking for more camber
