SSO implementation in community edition


I've been exploring Bonita for the past few weeks. I am interested in implementing a bonita based solution for an office that requires SAML v2 SSO for user authentication. Is this possible with the community edition? Also is it possible to use the security groups in AD with bonita?

Steps to enable Active Directory on Bonita 6.5.X Community

All the info I found about that where too ambiguous, not useful by itself. Something like "make an Authentication Service Implementation by yourself". So I searched a lot and found some way to make it working. I write the steps here: (Disclaimer: Use at your own risk, I'm not responsible for any problem/damage direct or indirect.)

External authentication and Bonita Portal user existence

In previous versions of Bonita (5.*) there wasn't any need for user accounts to actualy exist in Bonita Portal. What if I don't want to use LDAP/AD authentication but some custom third party authentication mechanism which doesn't expose users through LDAP protocol? How can I overcome the need for user existence within portal?

In 5.* releases Bonita supported authentication mechanisms like Jasig CAS for example. This isn't available in 6.* community editions anymore?
