All of that depends on the SAML2 solution you'll select at the web server level, so I cannot help you with that.

And for the PPM Server side of configuration for Generic Web SSO, everything is detailed in the administration guide: https://admhelp.microfocus.com/ppm/en/9.60/Help/Content/SA/InstallAdmin/110050_InstallAdmin_Auth.htm

Hi,

Yes, PPM 9.13 can be integrated with SAML2.0 using Generic Web SSO. Note that this is not a native SSO integration: The SAML2.0 logic is handled externally in a web server (for example, Apache 2.0 with mod_shib for Shibboleth support), and once the user is properly authenticated, the Web Server passes the request to the PPM Server with the username in an HTTP header. 

Just check the PPM Admin guide for configuration using Generic Web SSO, and keep in mind that it's up to you to set up the Web Server + SAML2.0 part. 

Please also make sure to set proper network security in place: once you use Generic Web SSO, you need to ensure that no HTTP traffic can occur directly between end-users web browsers and the PPM Server - all HTTP traffic MUST go through the web server to ensure proper security.
