How does Samanage identify it's users internally - is it by email address?

The reason I am asking is that we want to enable ADFS, but we are not advanced enough yet in our AD migration project (going from Novell to AD) and yet we want to get Samanage up and running before we cut over to AD. 

If we load users via csv import and then later turn on the ADFS will that cause us issues around duplication of users?
