When a user authenticates to wireless via 802.1x and makes a call to a web page that would be authenticated against shibboleth, we intercept the call, send it to ClearPass so it can send a SSO token with the users credentials to the web page so they don't need to login. In this case I believe we are the Idp. I think this is also called SAML chaining.

I really don't know how to translate that into anything I can answer. And there's nothing in SAML that I can think of called chaining.

I really don't yet know what part of Shibboleth you're trying to use, and I can't really figure out from that description what you'd be trying to do with that piece. If you have a pointer to documentation or something that outlines something you're having a question about, I might be able to skim it at some point and formulate some kind of advice from the perspective of what I would do if somebody here pointed me to it and asked me to support it.
