Definition of User ID Reconciliation

Users may have different User IDs on different systems. Any system intended to manage User Access or Authentication across multiple systems must begin by constructing profiles for each User, which attach User IDs on each system where that User has an Account to that user.

The process of constructing these User ID profiles is called User ID Reconciliation.
