To enable a UDP Client within Data Controller so that PlayoutONE can send and receive commands via UDP to other applications:

  1. Click the 'Settings' button from Data Controller's top bar.
  2. Go to the 'Integrations' tab
  3. Click the 'Add' button
  4. Choose 'UDP client' from the 'Service' drop-down menu
  5. Fill in the relevant IP address and port details

External applications can then send any command to Data Controller by sending a command via the UDP port.
