Note that you can also use the custom user table functionality in WordPress to share the users and usermeta tables between installations, but this feature has very little documentation.

The CUSTOM_USER_TABLE and CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE are the constants you should take a look at.

Looks like there is some reference here to 'CUSTOM_USER_TABLE' and 'CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE'.

I honestly never knew that was an option in core.

This ticket was mentioned in Slack in #core by sergey. View the logs.
