No, that's not possible. Authentication is left to the container right now
so is not part of the IdP and can't be automated.

Which entityID? You mean the SP? You shouldn't need entries for SPs, not
in general anyway. The default is fine.

Mainly authentication, possibly via web.xml and container, or Apache, or
something else.
