Help with merging IDs

I registered with a new council and it appears I was given a new member ID. Is that expected that you would get a member ID for each council?
My original member ID is: 2300614
The new one I was assigned is: 14184890
Should my new registration simply be added to my original member ID?
Or should I move forward with the new one?

@WilliamSchneider1 New Council + New Registration means a New MID - you can log into > click Menu top left > Click Manage Member ID > one of the BSA # will be there marked PRIMARY > then add the other MID (BSA #) - you want to make the one that is your unit registration PRIMARY > Then go to and log in using your credentials

Gotcha. I work in identity management so I didn’t want to create chaos lol.

I found the menu item you referenced and was able to switch my primary to my new council. Thank you very much for your quick help!

It is too bad that is where the BSA is now. Some (a lot?) of the bad feelings around Scoutbook come from poor modern identity architecture. It really needs to get straightened out. Almost before they do anything else.
