Merge way to —no-ff in gatekeeper

Hi guys!

We need to automate our releasing process with Bamboo and Jira.
In Jira we have issues with names like PREFIX-<number>. GIT branches with the same name for each issue.
Our git flow: stable master branch and feature branches starting from last stable master tag (last release). For new release "release branch” is created from master and feature branches merges with —no-ft into it. Bamboo builds all branches on every push. When release branch build is ok branch is manually merging to master and deploying to production.
What we need:
When developer changes issue status to Ready To Release in Jira feature-branch merges to release-branch with —no-ft and pushes to repository.
Bamboo builds release-branch and if it’s OK release manager can merge release-branch to master and deploy code manually.
If it’s not OK merge aborts and issue status changes to Not Ready To Release.
Atlassian tools described in documentation are not enough for us.
Jira Versions doesn’t trigger merge and push of multiple branches into release-branch.
Bamboo Automatic Branch Merging Gatekeeper merges branch with fast forward, but it neccesary to keep merge commits (—no-ff option is important). And it’s necessary to change Jira issue status if merge fail in Bamboo.
Does any atlassian tool can do it?
Is it possible to change merge way to —no-ff in gatekeeper?
May be there is another solution for our needs?
Thanks.

The only way to get no-ff is to modify the plugin: https://bitbucket.org/atlassian/bamboo-git-plugin

and install it into Bamboo. It's really easy.
