An Enterprise Application (EA) can be made up of 3 elements:
To find out more about Enterprise Applications see How to create an Enterprise Application
Use the Dependencies option to add other items monitored in SCOM upon which this application depends, for example:

- a domain controller or exchange server
- another application, such as email, that your app depends upon.
The health of these dependencies will not roll up to the health of the Enterprise Application, but can be seen on the EA dashboard.
