Filebeat: unrecognized service


I have installed filebeat from source using below steps :

apt-get install -y golang make git && mkdir HOME/go \ && mkdir -p {GOPATH}/src/
&& cd ${GOPATH}/src/
&& git clone
&& cd beats/filebeat
&& git checkout v6.6.2
&& make

However I'm getting error "filebeat: unrecognized service" for command , "service filebeat start".
Looks like I'm missing something here , Do I need to run any other command before starting the service ?

Any inputs will be appreciated. Thanks !

Building from source doesn't include the init files, you need to create that yourself.

Why not just use a deb/rpm?
