What is the value reference for project type?

Like value reference for summary is ("fields")("summary"). How about project type? Which to track the issue is under software or other fields.

In what sense?  What's a "value reference"?  Where are you seeing ("fields")("summary") ?

I'm using Excel VBA to get the json data from Jira, for example

Summary = Json("issues")("fields")("summary")

So its just field information.  I assume you are getting it over the REST interface?

The project "type" is a structural attribute of a project, not an issue field.  You'll need to make a call to read the project for an issue and look for the project type in the response.  It's under https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/server/#api/2/project-getProject

Can I have a sample of code in Excel VBA format?

Not from me I'm afraid.  I don't use any form of BASIC, and avoid spreadsheets like the plague as they're almost all wrong.
