Issue with mvindex in dashboard eval when using negative index value

Explorer

We are using Splunk 7.2.7.

When I use a negative index value in mvindex in a search eval, it works fine.

However, when I use a negative index value in a dashboard eval, it fails.

Here is a dashboard to demonstrate the issue.

Click on the "populate_tokens" cell in each row to populate the tokens that will display on the right-hand panel.
