Using a stereotype such as <<External System>> is one way to do it.

If it comes from a Use Case, you can add it as an actor (little person)

I agree with the previous post. Add it as an Actor. And actor doesnt need to be a person, its anything outside the interacts with the systems. Just like this external system is interacting with ur system. An actor can even be time.
