Is there a 'register with existing data' option in the Create Replica tool for ArcGIS Pro?

When working with the Create Replica tool in ArcGIS Pro, I don't see an option to 'register with existing data.' While I have been able to successfully create a replica and synchronize changes in Pro, the process only works when the target DB does not initially contain the data. Allowing the Create Replica tool to copy entire datasets every time I need to create a replica is not ideal. Has anyone discovered a way to create a replica when identical data is present in the parent and child databases?

The following link references the way this could be done in ArcMap.
