Suricata.service could not be found

I installed Suricata 6.0.9 from tar

make install
make install-full

but service do not start

get below error

sudo systemctl status suricata.service
Unit suricata.service could not be found.

Suricata does not, from source install a systemd service unit file. There is an example file that can be updated as necessary and used on the system running suricata in the source tarball. The file is in the etc/ directory under the source root directory.

Hope that helps,
