Is it possible to delegate SSO authentication using JAS for a non Jazz application? If yes, please give some guide lines how to achieve so or point me to any relevant document?

JAS is an implementation of the Liberty OpenID Connect feature, as a OpenID Connect provider. I believe an application needs to register itself to JAS using those endpoints exposed by JAS to utilize the JSA SSO. If the application that you have in mind has no such capability, I don't think you can do anything about it.

Thanks for the response. Could you please elucidate what you meant by JAS endpoints? Also, please point me to any specification where I can find the procedure to register a non-jazz application with JAS?

The endpoints are listed in the below document.

For JAS, the <provider_name> is "jazzop".

I believe the application needs to be rewritten to take advantage of the Liberty OpenID Connect feature. I don't have any more details on that I am afraid. You can search "Liberty OpenID Connect" and see if any materials are helpful.
