Is there a bulk update to "data-test-id" possible?

One of the issues encountered by our test automation team is about having duplicate "data-test-id" values within portals used by End Users.

The cause was due to the method employed by Pega Architects by copy pasting an UI control (textbox, Link, etc.) from one section to another, without generating a new "Test ID" values using "Generate ID" button.

Now this exist in many parts of the application. Is there a way (utility) to bulk generate unique "Test ID"'s for all UI rules (Section)?
