Description:
JSON Path allows to extract the last element from an array by specifying a negative index:

$[-1]

It would be very handy to have this in MySQL.

How to repeat:
mysql> SELECT JSON_EXTRACT(JSON_ARRAY(1, 2, 3), '$[0]');
+-------------------------------------------+
| JSON_EXTRACT(JSON_ARRAY(1, 2, 3), '$[0]') |
+-------------------------------------------+
| 1                                         |
+-------------------------------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> SELECT JSON_EXTRACT(JSON_ARRAY(1, 2, 3), '$[-1]');
ERROR 3143 (42000): Invalid JSON path expression. The error is around character position 2.
