It's one of those tricky things Sheps - watering any new plant - and it often comes down to experience.
A thorough soaking on planting, then weekly or thereabouts in dry spells ( theoretically this time of year) unless it's pouring with rain. As yours are in raised beds, they may dry out more quickly, so if the soil feels very dry when you stick your fingers in, you may need to soak them every few days. A mulch will also help prevent the soil drying out. You just have to judge by how the plant looks as well.
Honeysuckle is a woodland plant and likes shade below and reasonably damp soil so you may have to water more often. It depends what you filled the beds with too - you need a reasonable amount of soil rather than compost to help retain moisture.
