To elaborate more on the question, I am able to login into my application
application using shibboleth authentication. In other words I have
successfully setup SP for application and once I login using my credentials
I am successfully getting response from IDP and able to work on the
application. However the out of box webservices which invokes some of the
operations using batch file are no more working which were earlier working
fine when the application was using simple database authentication. So my
question is do we need to do some extra setting for webservices so that they
can be called from outside using batch files and perform shibboleth
authentication to execute their operations.


Why would you expect your web service clients to be able to perform SAML authentication using the web browser profile?

If you are protecting those web service endpoints with Shibboleth, then the requests from the clients to the server are being redirected to the IdP for authentication.
