Autofocus is available only with cameras that offer f/8 support. These include the Z 7, Z 6, D5, D500, D4/D4S, Df, D850, D810/D810A, D800/D800E, D750, D600/D610, D7100, D7200 and D7500. For cameras that do not support f/8, teleconverters can be used without autofocus.

Z Mirrorless Cameras - All the AF points work for Z mount system even at f/8 or f/11 maximum effective apertures. But AF accuracy may decrease and focusing speed may vary to subjects and shooting situations.

When using the built-in teleconverter on the AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR lens, autofocus is not available.
