Another question is users are unique to a repository and not across multiple repositories. Is this correct?
Users are managed at repository level, but nothing prevents you to use the same user account in two different repositories.
Visual Guard .Net ‘deployment option’ even allows you to replicate a user account list in several repository.
(right click on the repository and select ‘Deploy repository’).
This option enables you to copy some or all the information of a repository A in a repository B, including users.
I am not sure why you would want to do that though, and maybe we should investigate further, so that we can understand your need.
For example, if you need to use the same user account for various application, there is nothing to do:
You can get several applications in the same repository and users are available for all of them.
A user gets access to an applications, as soon as he/she is granted a role linked to a permission set valid for this application.
You can create roles available only for a given application, or shared roles, available for all applications.
