Default ILR eligibility

I have a Tier 2 general visa sponsered for soc code x. worked on this for 3 years now.
Now I am getting promoted on to a new role whose soc code is y. I know that a new tier 2 application needs to made and all that is in progress.

My question is: Since this is a new tier 2 general application, will this affect my 5 years counting towards ILR ? Do i need to spend another 5 years from now or the previous 3 years will be considered ?

No, since you're not changing visa type (i.e., you'll still be on a Tier 2 General), your ILR qualifying residence period does not get reset
