Create a User based service file:

cd ~/.config/systemd/user
podman generate systemd CONTAINER-NAME > container-CONTAINER-NAME.service

Edit the service file and comment out the PID= section. The allows you to not have to create a new service file each time you re-create the container.

Reload the systemctl dameon as root:

systemctl dameon-reload

Enable/start the service up. Do this as the user it will run as:

systemctl --user enable container-CONTAINER-NAME
systemctl --user start containre-CONTAINER-NAME
