1 ) Move the story to Epic.
2) Now, you have Epic with 20 sub-tasks, move the 20 sub-tasks using bulk udpate to "story" type.
Before bulk moving sub-tasks make sure the "create" issue screen of the story type has the mandatory field "Epic Link" thus when moving the 20 sub-tasks you can fill the mandatory field "Epic Link" and mention the issue key of the new Epic (step 1)
and it's done! Now you have Epic and 20 linked stories using Epic link field.
Tarun (or anybody who has done this) -
In the 2nd step when doing a bulk operation is it initiated from Epic's (which was previously a Story) Subtask menu, as shown in Screenshot 1 below, rather than manually filtering for the subtasks in the "Search for Issues" navigation seen in Screenshot 2 below?
I hope it's the former rather than the latter since the "Search for Issues" options seems really clunky.

Hi @Andrew C
You can click on "open in issue navigator" 4th option in your 1st screenshot and then "Move the issues" from the issue navigator view.
Definitely something that should be 'smoothed over' with a a Jira feature.
