I am trying to use this feature for hanging indents by setting First Line Indent to -20 and Left Indent to 20 and the negative value for First Line Indent is ignored.

I know this one is old but if anybody runs into the same problem the solution is to use left padding = +X and first line indent = -X.

I use Jasper Report 6.3.0 / Jaspersoft Studio and I have the same problem (for paragraphs and lists all the same).

Negative(!) values for "first line indents" are ignored (as if 0).
Positive values for "first line indents" just work fine

Attachment: I have made a screenshot of the results of negative, zero and positive values for first line indent.
