Custom Moodle Mobile app not sending notifications with private air notifier


I am setting up a private air notifier for my custom moodle mobile app. I am facing issues in sending notification to a user trying only android for now.

I have set up my system following moodle mobile custom apps. The mobile application is working fine except the notifications.

I have also setup the air notifier following the steps available in "Installing your own notifications infrastructure" in the Mobile app notifications document of moodle in the installation tab. I have created the GCM project number and Access Key.

I also tried to add SSL certificate in the air notifier config but it is throwing this error.

Version:1.0 StartHTML:0000000105 EndHTML:0000001521 StartFragment:0000000127 EndFragment:0000001503 Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 285, in <module>
  File "", line 193, in main
    ssl_ctx = ssl.create_default_context(ssl.Purpose.CLIENT_AUTH)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'create_default_context'

After that I created new app in airnotifier and added those GCM project number and GCM Access Key to that app. I generated Access Key in the air notifier app and used that access key in Site administration -> Plugins -> Mobile outputs -> Mobile Notifications as shown in the image.

Adding air notifier access key to moodle desktop application with app name

After that if I go to User Profile -> Preferences -> Messaging, I still get the message "No registered devices. Devices will automatically appear after you install the Moodle Mobile app and add this site." in Mobile Notifications. 

In moodle mobile custom application, I have added the "" app_id in config.json file and also in config.xml widget id.

I also updated GCMPN number in config.json file and config.xml file for <variable name="SENDER_ID" value="XXXXXXXXX" />. 

I also created apk of my custom app and tried on mobile device as well, but i am unable to view "3 dots menu" in app settings -> notification preferences.

I checked out most of the help forums in moodle and used any help I could get from there but still no luck.

Can anyone please help me with this issue. How to check if moodle is able to connect to my private air notifier?
