Can I configure jira workflow pull request merge trigger to only respond on merge on a particular branch?

My particular git branching strategy includes dedicated branches for environments.  I.E. I have a prod branch for deployment to the production environment and a staging branch to deploy to the staging environment.

 I also have Jenkins  jobs configured to poll these branches and deploy to their respective environments.  I recently attempted to set up a workflow in JIRA to trigger a transition upon pull request merge to advance a referrenced JIRA issue to a particular status.  In this case, I am trying to have the trigger advance the issue to the "Deployed to Staging" on the pull request merge to the Staging branch only.  This doesn't seem to be happening.  Is there something I am missing here?  Is there some way to configure the trigger to only look at the staging branch?

The triggers they have on transitions are too limited.  You will have to enable Smart Commits and leverage that.  It will be more flexible, but not as automatic.  In your commit comment you will have to enter commands such as: <Card ID> #deployed-to-staging <comment> (for your example above)
