I need to know if SF Communities supports OAuth 2.0 SAML bearer assertion flow. Based on what I read here communities doesn't support SAML Assertion flow that is different from the SAML Bearer Assertion Flow. Is it right?

Have anyone ever used Oauth 2.0 SAML bearer assertion flow in order to authenticate external user?

Following the summer 16 release it does.

Setup a connceted app Use the clientID that is generated in the app as the Issuer in the SAML assertion set the Recipient: $PORTAL URL$/services/oauth2/token set the Audience: $PORTAL URL$ Endpoint URL to send base64 encoded SAML assertion: $PORTAL URL$/services/oauth2/token
