Match outline color to fill color automatically

With a polygon layer I want to draw the polygones with the same outline color as the fill color.
In the menu Layer properties > Symbology > for example Unique values: I have a layer file with many (> 500) different ids and I want to color all polygons with a different color, but also the outline color with the same color as the fill color. In this menu: I can only change the outline color for all selected symbols.

Is there an automatic procedure for this problem?

Mapping Center Answer:

Currently, there is no automated way to do this through the user interface.

But, if the outline color is going to be the same as the fill color, one option might be to set the outline to no color/no width because if the outline color is the same as the fill color, the outline wouldn't be visible.
