I need your help how I can do

        $group_id = $this->request->getData()['group_id'];
        $files = $this->request->getUploadedFiles();

        $myname = $this->request->getData()['import']->getClientFileName();
        $myext = substr(strchr($myname, "."), 1);
        $mypath = "upload/imports/".$myname;
        if ($myext == 'xls') {
            $reader = new \PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Reader\Xls();
        }else if($myext == 'xlsx'){
            $reader = new \PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Reader\Xlsx();
        $spreadsheet = $reader->load(WWW_ROOT.$mypath);
        $sheet = $spreadsheet->getActiveSheet()->toArray();
        foreach ($sheet as $key => $excel){
            if ($key == 0) {
            $data = [
                'nis' => $excel[1],
                'name' => $excel[2],
                'group_id' => $group_id,
            // debug($data);
            // die();
            $student = $this->Students->newEmptyEntity();
            $student = $this->Students->patchEntity($student, $data);
            if ($excel[1] != null AND $excel[2] != null) {
                if ($this->Students->save($student)) {
                    $this->Flash->success(__('The student has been saved.'));
                $this->Flash->error(__('The student could not be saved. Please, try again.'));
        return $this->redirect(['action' => 'index']);

You can get the temporary file path from the stream’s metadata.

$stream = $uploadedFile->getStream();
$tmpFilePath = $stream->getMetadata('uri');

Thank you for your help, it works with getMetadata(‘uri’).
