Context aware SSO linking from Web-App to Confluence.

We are considering Confluence as a help and knowledge base system for our B2B web application. We would like to have context-aware links within our application that will log in or create users in via SAML(SSO) and drive users to relevant information depending on where they are coiming from.

Is this possible, and what are the recommended solutions?

First you should look at how you can distinguish user 1 from user 2. 

If your users can be distinguished by IP/subnet, then you could apply some apache/nginx rules based on that and redirect them to the proper content. 

Finally you can add a SSO solution ontop of that.
