Change Login ID for existing users

We currently use username (jdoe) as login ID but for the purposes of changing our authentication method might need to change to email address (jdoe@xxxxxx.edu).  What are the implications of doing so?  Would we be creating entirely new users (they would have the same SIS ID) or updating?  Would teachers/students lose the history of their Canvas work?  Can I even do so if the users already have the SIS ID?  Our integration sends files that create the users.  does that mean the user (by SIS ID) would just have the name change and nothing more?  Any thoughts?  Thanks, Vi
