Please refer to the quickstart information of MANTIS, available at

Once you are set up with MANTIS, you can use the Django ```` to import
STIX indicators into your system as follows::

$ python mantis_stix_import <xml-file> <xml-file> ... [--settings=<path_to_your_django_settings_module]

Here is the output of ``--help`` for ``mantis_stix_import``::

Usage: mantis_stix_import [options] xml-file xml-file ... (you can use wildcards)

Imports stix XML files of specified paths into DINGO

Verbosity level; 0=minimal output, 1=normal output, 2=verbose output, 3=very verbose output
--settings=SETTINGS The Python path to a settings module, e.g. "myproject.settings.main".
If this isn't provided, the DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE environment variable will be used.
A directory to add to the Python path, e.g. "/home/djangoprojects/myproject".
--traceback Print traceback on exception
-m MARKING_JSON, --marking_json=MARKING_JSON
File with json representation of information of marking to be associated with imports.
Key-value pairs used to fill in placeholders in marking as described in marking file.
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit


The basic layout for this Django app with out-of-the-box configuration of ```` for
easy build, submission to PyPi, etc., and Sphinx documentation tree was generated with Audrey Roy's excellent `Cookiecutter`_
and Daniel Greenfield's `cookiecutter-djangopackage`_ template.

0.2.0 (2014-02-26)

* Added ability to generate identifier for top-level element
(usually a STIX_Package) if an identifier for that element is
missing: if a default namespace has been defined, then
an identifier is generated by taking the MD5-hash of the
xml file.

* Markings present in STIX_Package are read out and attached
to all InfoObjects generated from the STIX_Package.

Note: Mantis does currently not interpret the XPATH expression
that specifies the scope of the marking (which is not much
of an issue, since it seems that the feature to restrict
the scope of a marking is not much used at the moment).

* Timestamp present in `STIX_Header/Information_Source/Time/Produced_Time`
is read.

* Added a command-line argument to add a default-timestamp to the STIX import

* Bug fixes:

* Attributes other than `id` and `idref` that contained a namespace were not
handled correctly. The handler function `attr_with_namespace_handler`
fixes this.
* In `0.1.0`, the `xsi:type` attribute was not recorded, because in most cases,
its information is used for determining the data type of elements and
InfoObjects. But there are cases, e.g., in Markings, where this is not the
case. For these cases, the `xsi:type` attribute is kept in the InfoObject.
* Family revision info was not recorded; this has been fixed.

0.1.0 (2013-12-19)

* Bugfixes; added documentation

0.0.9 (2013-12-18)

* First release on PyPI.
