I don’t know about building codes, but obviously you need to use appropriate screws (not drywall screws). I don’t trust nails because they loosen over time. The reason this topic attracted my attention in the first place is because recently I was replacing similar bracket on a very similar beam that was even less exposed to the elements for +15 years. I could easily pull the nails with pliers with one hand.
