Sub-Task Estimation when Parent Story uses Points

I'm trying to set up JIRA Agile for my team. I created a test Story, and gave it an estimate of 1 story point. I then created a sub-task. I put both In Progress, then clicked Log Work and entered 1h time spent. The default remaining is to use the original estimate, but when I created the sub-task, there was no field for that. After I entered my time and close the screen, the story shows 1h time spent, 0m remaining and Estimated says "Not Specified". How do I enter an original time estimate on a sub-task?

The way we proceed in that case is to put an original estimate on the story, (if you work with story point it will help getting the business value, if you need it) and log work only in subtask.
