Within Portfolio, how do I assign existing epics to a new initiative?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Creating and deleting work items

I have just gotten the initiative field added to my workflow. I have over 200 epics already existing within Portfolio. How can I assign epics to the initiative?
