RST Pin for SWD interface is necessary?

image description

I am using the Segger interface for designing an nRF52 based device. I am planning to use SWDIO SWCLK VTref and GND pins on my device. Is it necessary to connect the nRESET pin to the Reset pin of the NRF52 chip? If I dont connect this, will there be any issue with programming/flashing the device? what are the advantages/disadvantages? Can anyone kindly elaborate on this?

thank you!
