Confluence and Shibboleth

I am trying the instructions on:

Everything went fine until I came to the shibboleth rpm. Now when I build it, I get the following error:

hecking XML-Security-C version... OK
checking whether XML-Security-C supports white/blacklisting of algorithms... yes
checking xmltooling/base.h usability... yes
checking xmltooling/base.h presence... yes
checking for xmltooling/base.h... yes
configure: error: xmltooling XML catalog not found, may need to use --with-xmltooling option
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.SJtV3a (%build)

RPM build errors:
    InstallSourcePackage at: psm.c:244: Header V3 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 7d0a1b3d: NOKEY
    line 14: prereq is deprecated: PreReq:              xmltooling-schemas(x86-64) >= 1.5.0, opensaml-schemas(x86-64) >= 2.5.0
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.SJtV3a (%build)

Any ideas?

Before going any further you'll need to find out whether this "other web application" can be integrated with SAML (e.g. using Shibboleth) or with Atlassian's Crowd (the "alternative" to SAML and Shibboleth mention before. given your environment/constraints).

Otherwise you might end up (i.e., after a lot of work and a steep learning curve) with Confluence integrated with a SAML SP authenticating to a SAML IdP (which in turn uses Confluence's
database) but still don't achieve SSO with that other application.

It might be trivial. Or it might not be possible.
Probably somewhere in between.
