Crowd Control

From Diablo 4 Wiki

Crowd Control (CC) is the ability to control multiple enemies for a short period of time, by stunning, making them flee, slowing or halting them entirely. This allows you time to attack a heftier foe whilst debilitating surrounding minions, reposition yourself or run away! The affected targets can no longer attack you.

Every class in Diablo 4 has skills that offer some form of Crowd Control all of which will have a cooldown.

Some enemies will be partially or fully immune to controlling effects.
