Mac OS X, Active Directory, and SAML

Related to External Authentication for FIleMaker, how would a SAML implementation on Active Directory affect the authentication process? We are looking at switching to EA for some of our files, but our IT has mentioned that they use SAML. FileMaker states that EA will only talk to Active Directory and Open DIrectory. Would SAML get in the way of that?

 

From what I have found it looks like SAML is more the connection from the server to the AD server. So this seems like it would be more of the realm of the OS configuration and capability, and thus (hopefully) not affect the FM side of things.

 

Anyone have any experience with this?

 

Thanks,
