Some 3rd party BACnet devices contain 1000's of objects, performing an upload on these devices can take upwards of 30 minutes to complete when only a handfull of objects are required for integration.

Upload of all objects in a controller can take a large amount of time and is overkill if only one or two points are required for integration.
This was tested with a b3 but you should be able to do the same thing with any third-party device.
- Do a BACnet discovery and find the new devices in the Hardware folder.
- Select and drag these devices from the hardware folder to the BACnet Interface folder. Do not upload the BACnet objects.
- In the Hardware folder select the Device you want the objects from and select those objects from the RH view. Drag and drop these onto the Device object in the BACnet Interface folder.
