[Koha] Koha, Shibboleth and autocreation of users

We are trying to implement Shibboleth with Koha. As far as I understand 
Shibboleth is just about authentication (allowing users to sign in using 
just one identity to various systems).

Now the library (that doesn't want to link Koha to LDAP directly) 
suggests that Koha should create a user the first time when that user 
logs into Koha through Shibboleth resp. the single sign-on IDP. The SSO 
IDP is using underlying LDAP to give back the "mail" and "uid" 
attributes from LDAP.

Is it possible that Koha autocreates new users this way?

I couldn't really find the answer to this or the way to go in 
https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Shibboleth_Configuration but then 
again I am trying to implement Shibboleth in Koha the very first time...
