How to automatically generate slugs for a large set of articles?

Last updated: Oct 1, 2021
I have tons of articles, but they don't have slugs. I've now added a slug field to the schema, but it looks like I have to manually go in to every article, click generate, and then publish.
Is there a quicker way?

const buildPatches = docs =>
  docs.map(doc => ({
    id: doc._id,
    patch: {
      set: {'slug.current': slugify(doc.title)},
      // ifRevisionID: doc._rev
