Beware the dangers of the cutting/bleeding edge!
There is a problem in the SharePoint 2013 Cumulative Update for August 2013. The problem manifests itself as an inability to work with SQL Server Reporting Services parameters within the Performance Point Dashboard Designer.
What happens is that SSRS report parameters are not displayed when the report is created in the Dashboard Designer. This means that you will not be able to link the Performance Point filters to the report.
One workaround is to edit the deployed dashboard page directly in SharePoint and use the SharePoint SSRS web part instead of the Performance Point SSRS web part. (Yes, there are 2 different web parts for SSRS!)
The moral of the story is to make sure that you really need the corrections in the Cumultive Updates! Here is some text copied directly from the Microsoft Site for this update. (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2817616)
