Set permissions for confluence space for all non-anonymous users

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Space Permissions Overview

I am trying to set up permissions for our organisation so that all non-anoymous (Unlicensed) users can comment on blog posts.

This option is available for anonymous users, but I want only logged in users to be able to comment. (As the space is not accessible anonymously.)

Is this possible?

Ok, so non-anonymous is not unlicensed users it is your licensed users. Anonymous users do not need a license. Anyway, the setup for them is in the same place. You need to be a space admin to make the change. While in the space you want to change permissions for go to space tools and select permissions.

On that page there are permission sections for users, groups, and anonymous. One of the permissions is the ability to add comments. Simply select that for the user, group, or anonymous section.

No - it is unlicensed users that I want to set permissions for. i.e. registered users that have a login for confluence but are not licensed as confluence users, such as those that have access to JIRA.

These users are somewhere in the middle of licensed and anonymous, but don't have the option to set permissions within a space. If they are in any groups that are added then they still don not receive the access that is given and they do not show up in the individual users if trying to add them directly there.
