When determining support timeframes and certification combinations for an Enterprise Manager Base Platform installation, you must consider the Enterprise Manager framework components (Oracle Management Service, Repository Database, and Fusion Middleware Server) as well as the targets (products, plug-ins) monitored by Enterprise Manager. Oracle recommends keeping your Enterprise Manager components and targets updated to the latest versions in order to receive code fixes without having to pay Extended Support fees. Certified combinations of Enterprise Manager components and monitored targets are available in My Oracle Support Certification tab.
