Every user accessing the open metadata ecosystem has a unique user identity (userId). This identity is used for authentication, authorization and auditing of activity related to open metadata and governance.
A user identity identifies the logon (security) account of the user.
The user may be a person, or an automated process/engine. Either way, user identities should not be shared between people or automated process/engines.
