Can you elaborate? It's unclear to me what you are asking.

You intend to install and configure the Shibboleth IDP software on

There's only one supported IDP version and that's the current
release. (Once a new release is out that will be the only supported

Here's the start of the installation documentation for you:
There are many deployment decisions that will influence how exactly to
configure the integration with the Java servlet container and web
server, though.
Since systemd has meanwhile grown features to set POSIX capabilities
