Deck Posts to Beams
I’ve never seen that bracket before today. You need to check with your local building department to see what code they follow.
If you have enough room for that bracket then there’s room to cut the post. You will have a much more structurally sound deck with the beam on top of the post and you won’t have buy the ½” bolts.
In other words what you want to do is doing more to end up with less.
