Auto merge after successful check on pull request

hello, i am working on automating testing and merging my repo. right now, i have set up jenkins to checkout and build as soon as a pull request is created and all that works. my checks are seen from the pull request page and the merge option is available. but i want it to auto merge without me having to click a button. i have enabled auto merge on this repo and followed github’s instructions but it still waits for me to click the merge button. is there an option to auto merge directly from github? if not, then perhaps i could tell jenkins that the pull request has passed all checks then send a merge command to github from jenkins…
