I think the short answer is still, you don't, unfortunately.  The Create GIS Server Connection File tool isn't/wasn't a core geoprocessing tool but an ArcPy Mapping function, and the ArcPy Mapping module was completely overhauled between ArcMap and Pro.  I haven't double checked in Pro 2.7, but last time I looked into this issue there was no good solution.

UPDATE:  See https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-pro-questions/how-to-create-an-arcgis-server-connection-file-wi...for an option on using the undocumented  arcgisscripting._createGISServerConnectionFile.

Thankyou Joshua. 

 

What a joke however, ArcGIS Pro is junk ware. Truly the worst software I have ever used. There should be an arcpy API for functions that are prerequisites to any GP tool API (i.e. creating map service cache titles).
