Hi Raul,
I agree that the tool is missing, but this bug is present in Debian too.
And IMHO it would be best fixed in Debian, and then Ubuntu will pick it up on the next merge.

The config doesn't have it enabled
  build nut-scanner: no

Interestingly the same feature is provided as API in libupsclient-dev as [1]
I wonder if there is another way than nut-scanner to utilize that which would already be build in, but at least I don't know about it :-/

Would you mind filing a bug with Debian please?
I checked - so far there is none about that in [2].

If you happen to do so, please let us know the bug number here so that we can track the bug in Debian from here.

Thanks Raul,
I linked the bug here and subscribed on the Debian bug to see what their opinion on this is.
If nothing happens for quite a while we need to reconsider doing this just on our own, but for now lets see.

Hi fellows,

It's always true that I'm more focused on upstream these years, than on
Debian an Ubuntu.
I'll try to make a summary to explain the what and how on this nut-scanner
feature, on the Debian ticket

Our check on potentially dormant bugs brought this one up and I realized that it was recently fixed in 2.7.4-9.
Lets merge that for Eoan ...

This was fixed in, which is currently in eoan-proposed, and this bug will auto-close once the package migrates.

The addition of nutscan made it hit the new queue which explains the extra delay.

This bug was fixed in the package nut - 2.7.4-9ubuntu1

nut (2.7.4-9ubuntu1) eoan; urgency=medium

  * Merge with Debian unstable (LP: #1505288). Remaining changes:
    - remove Build-Depends on libpowerman0-dev
    - remove nut-powerman-pdu
      + debian/control: remove nut-powerman-pdu package
      + debian/nut-powerman-pdu.{install,manpages}: dropped for now
    - debian/, debian/{nut,nut-server,nut-client}.install,
      debian/rules: Install apport hooks for all top-level nut packages.
    - debian/tests/ in the CVE_2012_2944 test, give nut at most
      + 5 seconds to shut down, instead of expecting it to be shut down
        immediately after sending the killall.
      + Additional indication on how to run tests for xenial+
    - d/nut-server.postinst, d/nut-cgi.postinst: ensure nut is member of group
      dialout (This existed, but was missed in the Changelog).
    - debian/libnutclient0.symbols: Correct symbols file for ppc64el.
    - Mark more symbols as optional (ppc64el, -O3).
  * Dropped changes (in Debian now):
    - debian/tests/control : Fix dep8 test failures:
       + Drop python-unit from dep8 dependencies since the python-test
         package has now been removed. The unittest module has shipped with
         Python since 2.1.
       + Add dep8 test dependency on python, since Python 2 is required and
         is not necessarily installed by default any more.
