I've been searching around Google but I can't find an answer so I'm hoping
someone on the technical list might be able to answer this.

Samba 4.1 looks absolutely amazing and my school might like to use it as a
secondary LDAP.  Is there native SAML authentication in Samba 4.x or should
a third party cloud application like Okta be used?  The scenario is that
our user accounts live in Samba 4.1 and we would like to use cloud
applications like or  The cloud applications would
authenticate against our Samba 4.1 LDAP.
