I have a lot of programmatically generated nodes with the option "Generate automatic URL alias" unchecked, so i can't use the Bulk Update of the pathauto module.

How can i to bulk generate the pathauto alias for these nodes?

Edit: i use Drupal 7

Have you tried using Views Bulk Operation. All you will need to do is create a view that will list all the nodes that will meet your criteria and then assign an action 'Generate Url alias' (I haven't tried it though.)

You need to delete the aliases for those previously created nodes before assigning them new aliases. This post explains how to do that.

I am using Drupal 7, not 5 or 6. Anyway in Drupal 7 the content of the link can be done from admin panel selecting a proper configuration. I am trying to bulk assign an alias to nodes that have the option "Generate automatic URL alias" unchecked –  user1014351 Sep 7 '12 at 9:56
