Is there a tool that will reconnect your layers to the source all at once.

Definitely looking forward to getting this functionality from ArcMap.

If all your broken data links point to the same geodatabase or same folder of shapefiles, yes.  Click on the Red Exclamation point for the layer in the Contents Pane and AGP will reconnect all the layers.

I'm looking for equivalency of the Set Datasource Tool in ArcCatalog portion of ArcMap.  You could reset any number of different sources at once.

I understand what you're asking - to my knowledge there is not an equivalency from ArcMap to AGP for this.  I see you responded to the ArcGIS Idea thread.

This is quite disappointing as that is a really useful tool.

Agreed - I'd recommend adding it as a new ArcGIS Idea and/or supporting (if there is) an existing idea to have this function in ArcGIS Pro 2.x.

This is another one of those frustrating lack of equivalency issues that baffles me. Why is an idea or an enhancement request needed?

There appears to be an enhancement request ENH-000117737 for this functionality and is listed as in the Product Plan.
