Could you please attach the hda in question?

Detect Open/Closed Curves in Maya July 7, 2021, 1:35 p.m.

Unfortunately it looks like this is a HAPI limitation. I have gone ahead and created an RFE so that it can be tracked in our system.

One way to get around this may be to go ahead and create that attribute, but set its value through a Python script. Something like:

from maya import cmds

input_curve_nodes ='houdiniInputCurve')

for input_curve_node in input_curve_nodes:
    curve_nodes = cmds.listConnections(input_curve_node + '.inputCurve', d=False)
    if curve_nodes:
        curve_node = curve_nodes[0]
        form = cmds.getAttr(curve_node + '.form')
        is_closed = (form == 1) or (form == 2)
        cmds.setAttr(input_curve_node + '.myParm', is_closed)

That will set the value of the parm for each input curve node based on whether the input curve is closed or not.
