Using REST API, how do I know if the project is Scrum or Kanban or Basic

For project creation using REST API, we pass "projectTemplateKey" which is setup scrum, kanban or basic.

Similary, if the project is already created using JIRA UI, what is the REST API I should use to get the ProjectTemplateKey.


In the project json there is only projectTypeKey whcih says "software".

You don't - the scrum/kanban is only really part of the creation process.  It determines what board to create by default and the fields, workflows etc, but once created, the project is, well, a project.  You can create more boards that refer to it, of either scrum or kanban, and change the workflows, fields etc to make it work totally differently.
