BPMoC SAML Token Propogation

We are integrating IBM BPM on Cloud with our backend SAP HR system via IBM Integration Bus.

One of the requirement we have is to pass the SAML token of logged in user to SAP when they try to execute a transaction in SAP from BPM. The BPMoC system is configured to use the Kingfisher AD and same is also used by SAP system. When BPM user log in they are authenticated using AD and a SAML token is provided. We need this token to be propagated to backend system to allow SSO. The current BPM on Cloud system doesn't allow the same (as confirmed by the security architect) and restricts the ability to use SSO with backend systems.
Please let me know if you require more information. Thanks

    We value your suggestions for BAW product enhancements. This is a valid requirement and may be considered for a future BAW release. Please note this is not a commitment, but an indication of intent.
