How much information to share with HR/manager?

I applied for short term disability but it doesn’t look like I will return to work.
The medical documentation was sent directly to the insurer.
How much information should be shared with HR and my manager about my estimated length of leave (indefinite at this point)?

Unknown at this time for return.

At this point you don’t have to give details, just that you are unable to work due to a medication condition and your return date is uncertain. Ideally, you should provide ongoing updates like this to to your effect every few months.
