How to put ballpark estimates for an epic created in Jira?

Any reason why you do not want to do this as with any regular JIRA issue? Add the estimate in either story points or hours? We use story points and estimate the epics when created.

Once user stories that make out the epic is created and estimated, the ballpark estimate is removed from the epic. 

Hello Ivar,

Thanks for the information,
