Does MDM support custom Golden Record ID's?
No. The Golden Record ID is a unique system-generated GUID across the MDM platform. Out of curiosity, what's the situation in which you would want a custom golden record ID? Maybe there's another way to approach the problem.
My customer would like to know if MDM could generate a more user friendly formatted GUID, e.g. including "business abbreviations" as part of your GUID (location, cost center, business unit etc). As an architect, I recommend not to do this and use software generated ID's. This avoids issues with the use of "meaningful key fields". So personally, I'm fine with the GUID MDM generates. It serves it's purpose, it's a unique identifier
