I'm trying to authenticate users using an external IDP which has shibboleth. The use case is as following:

External IDP (using shibboleth)--> GeoNetwork

I'm not sure if this use case is doable.

According to the documentation[1], it is possible to use shibboleth for the authentification, But I'm not sure how to make it work with an external IDP. Do I need to use the following use case using Shibboleth (described in [1]) as a go-between:

External IDP (using shibboleth)--> Shibboleth as service provider--> GeoNetwork
