I have a Dev - Stage - Live publishing process for new versions of a SaaS product. All three stages are published but to different endpoints. Dev is for internal acceptance testing, Stage is available to outside API consumers for preview, and Live is fully released.
I don't think that JIRA releases can be staged in any way. You can release them and archive them, that's it.
We are doing this with the workflow. We have workflow status for development, development testing (DEV in your example), a stage for testing with a small group of our employees (Stage) and finally the released stage.
We also keep records on the testing with that workflow. The testers have to confirm, that the issue is solved with the JIRA workflow.
