Our logging needs sends information to a WebAPI. I believe I need a custom logging back-end, but I hardly know where to start bar extending LoggingBackend. I'm not sure what I should be doing to customise it and the documentation is lacking:

Is there a timeline for when the documentation will be available?

    yes that is true. Unfortunately we don't have documentation for custom logging backend ready yet.

    Please, take a look at this example, it gives you an overview how to implement a custom logging backend:

    you can find the documentation attached. Interfacing a custom logging back-end is documented in Conceptual Documentation > Logging > Implementing an Adapter to a Custom Logging Framework.

    If the docs show only TOC and no content, you might need this:

    We are going to publish the docs to, but we are having some issues, so you can use this one in the meanwhile.

    Best regards,
