User migration from LDAP to OIDC (Microsoft Entra ID)

Problem to solve

Hello, we have a gitlab ce instance, self hosted on ubuntu, with ldap authentification that we would like to migrate to microsoft entra id.
we found the docs for this and it seems very easy, but we are not sure if we can migrate the users to the same login. they use the same logindata but will the user “mapping” working when we switch from ldap to OIDC ? or do we need additional steps?
