Hi wdavon24 sorry I did reply originally, but I think I misunderstood the question so I removed it until I had time to re-type my answer.
In your scenario you would need to do something like the following:
Alert On: Application
Scope of Alert: All Objects
Application - Status - is equal to - Down
and Node - Status - is equal to - Up
and Application - Application Name - is equal to - Application A
or Application - Application Name - is equal to - Application B
Then within "Advanced options" you would need to select "Enable complex conditions" this will then enable you to select the added option of: "Alert can be triggered if more or equal 2 objects (at the same time)..."
*This will tell the alert that you need both of the OR statements to be true (So you could have 3, 4, 5 etc and only 2 of them need to be down or 3 conditions and change the variable to 3.*
If you need a screenshot then let me know. There are some other ways to do this as well, if you were looking to monitor some critical applications together you could put them in a group and then monitor & alert on the group status rather than the individual applications.
