Doc Text:
.`rsyslog` now provides the `omhttp` plugin for communication through an HTTP REST interface With this update of the `rsyslog` packages, you can use the new `omhttp` plugin for producing an output compatible with services using a Representational State Transfer (REST) API, such as the Ceph storage platform, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Grafana Loki. This new HTTP output module provides a configurable REST path and message format, support for several batching formats, compression, and TLS encryption. For more details, see the `/usr/share/doc/rsyslog/html/configuration/modules/omhttp.html` file installed on your system with the `rsyslog-doc` package.

Description Rich Megginson 2019-02-12 14:58:11 UTC
Description of problem:
rsyslog needs a general purpose REST API for communication with a new generation of logging services - AWS S3, CEPH object store api, Loki, and many more.  In addition, the existing http apis (elasticsearch, mmkubernetes) could use more generalized support for http options such as headers, and better tls option support for passing in cipher suites, tls versions, and other tls parameters (especially the flag to turn off strict root CA checking so that we can use intermediate CA certs).

There is an upstream PR - https://github.com/rsyslog/rsyslog/pull/3423 - but I don't yet know if it supports all of the features we require.
